Course Description

Academic Year 2020-2021 • Grade 6 and above • Greek Sequence

Greek I

This course, together with Greek II, teaches Attic (classical) Greek using the classic textbook by Hansen and Quinn. By the end of the two-year sequence, students are ready to tackle Attic authors, and in the past have tested into upper-division college-level courses in Greek. By the end of the first year, most students can make reasonably good progress through the Greek New Testament with little more assistance than a lexicon.
